Chubb Community Care, part of Chubb Fire & Security Ltd, has been awarded a place on a significant framework agreement with ESPO, a public sector owned professional buying organisation, to deliver the latest technology-driven care solutions to organisations throughout the UK.
The agreement confirms Chubb as an approved framework supplier, allowing its range of Technology Enabled Care Solutions (TECS) to be featured in ESPO’s Framework 203 Telecare & Telehealth catalogue of products and services. Through this framework, Chubb can provide managed services and design commissioned systems for organisations such as local authority establishments, the National Health Service & Health and Social Care in Northern Ireland bodies, registered charities and registered social landlords.
The framework agreement supports the integration of health and social care services, making it a flexible solution for commissioners to compliantly procure both health and care support for individuals, tailored to their specific requirements. The framework includes technology, such as Chubb’s CareUnity®, that can remotely raise the alarm in the event of a call for help, a fall, or unusual patterns from monitored chairs and beds. It also covers environmental protection technology, which alerts service users and their carers to hazards including fire, flood, high carbon monoxide levels and extreme temperatures.
Jane Blois, category manager at ESPO, said, “Providing commissioners with easy access to telecare and telehealth technologies is important. Chubb’s experience in the sector, as well as its diverse range of products helped to ensure its place on the framework agreement.”
David Hammond, general manager, Chubb Community Care, said, “This new agreement builds on the growing profile of our business and our recent success with the Northern Housing Consortium to establish Chubb as a true leader in its field. It provides further opportunity to demonstrate the wide range of products and services that we deliver to an ever-increasing number of clients.”
